Boston Marathon Cancelled For 1st Time In 124 Years
- For the first time in 124 years, the Boston Marathon has been cancelled.
- After initially postponing it from April to September, organizers announced Thursday that the annual race would be cancelled and replaced with a ‘virtual’ race where runers verify their own 26.2 mile runs.
- It’s the first time in the marathon’s 124-year history that it won’t be run. More than 30,000 runners participate each year and over a million spectators line up along the marathon route to watch.
- Are you surprised the race was cancelled when many sports are gearing up to return? Do you think you could run a marathon?
